Statements made by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Spokesperson

Paris - July 14, 2017

Attack in Jerusalem (July 14, 2017) – Reminder of the statement by the spokesperson

France condemns the attack involving automatic weapons carried out on Friday in the Old City of Jerusalem, which killed two Israeli police officers.

We extend our condolences to the victims' family and friends.

The use of violence in all its forms, is unacceptable and runs counter to the quest for peace. In a context of increasing tensions, notably in the occupied part of Jerusalem, France calls on all parties to refrain from any act or statement that could heighten these tensions.

Middle East peace process

Is France's Middle East peace initiative dead?

France's commitment to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is unwavering. France's aim is to help the parties resume their dialogue and to support them in the re-establishment and conclusion of a political process.

In this regard, and as the President said yesterday, "France is ready to support all diplomatic efforts to this end, based on the parameters recognized by the international community."
